Guests will also able to take a masterclass hosted by the Meilleurs Sommeliers du Monde and an ‘older vintages’ themed workshop. More than 650 people attended the inaugural 2012 fair which saw drinks industry professionals and wine lovers alike gather to taste the wines of Alsace and explore its terroirs, culture and philosophy.
